USN-525-1: libsndfile vulnerability

4 October 2007

libsndfile vulnerability

Releases

Packages

Details

Robert Buchholz discovered that libsndfile did not correctly validate the
size of its memory buffers. If a user were tricked into playing a specially
crafted FLAC file, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user
privileges.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 6.06

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart your session to effect
the necessary changes.
